Burgundy (dark red, red wine color) is actively used for hair dyeing in brunettes. Blondes and women with medium brown hair sometimes also resort to this noble hue in order to appear brighter, well, much brighter. Even redheads may try some shades, reminding burgundy, but leaning towards the warmer tints with the admixture of cinnamon. Classic, vivid or old burgundy, maroon or oxblood… so, which one to choose? Here are 50 illustrative examples of how you can use the dark red color when dyeing your hair or refreshing it with coloristic methods.

Fabulous Opportunities of Burgundy Hair Color

It livens your tresses, adds a mysterious undertone or, on the contrary, the boldest shade you could ever imagine on yourself. Burgundy adjusts to your basic hair color and lets you achieve your goals. Do you want to be at the center of everyone’s attention? Create a smart retro look? Add a pop of color for the fall period that will look in tune with nature changes? No problem, look through the pictures below and choose.

Initially, burgundy hue was considered a perfect brown hair shade for real brunettes. These days, even some blondes dare to go that bright and eye-popping. If a step towards bold vinous color shades seems too challenging for now, but you are tempted to try something revolutionary, consider ombre in red and purple tones with demi-permanent dyes. Well, let’s see some pictures.

1. Dark Red Velvet

Those red velvet cupcakes you love to devour can now be channeled in your hair, and the results are just as delectable. Pick a rich shade of burgundy red that blends out nicely in a pretty balayage effect. Can you say, “yummy?”

2. Dark Chocolate Hair with Burgundy Balayage

The rich burgundy hair color in balayage highlights shines and stuns. To make the quality of the color even more evident, add long low-maintenance layers that will keep your hair looking healthy and luxurious.

3. Bright Burgundy Locks

Displaying that burgundy purple hair you invested in is easier than you think. Give yourself a sleek, silky blowout and let the hair dye really shine. Just use a round or paddle brush and run it through a section of damp hair while following it with a blowdryer.

4. Deep and Dark Purple Hair

Dark red violet locks are about as close to natural-looking hair as you’re going to get, without actually going natural. Try a shade that sports a subtle purple tinge that isn’t incredibly noticeable… until you stand in the sun. Then, watch the sparks fly.
